Hello. My scripting skills are weak so forgive if there is a simple correction. When a user uploads a file with an ' symbol in the filename it is renamed and recorded as _ in the DB but the symbol in the file name is renamed as \_

Any ideas on how to correct issue?

Hello Chris,

Please, provide info on your DW version as well as your server and workstation OS.
Is the file name starting with "'"?

Hello. I am using CS4. Site is using MySQL 5 Database Server and PHP 5. The issue is a user will upload a document for example named "natures's fury.pdf". The script converts the "'" to an underscore "natures_s fury.pdf" in the DB but renames the the file with a backward slash and underscore "natures\_s fury.pdf"

Hello Chris,

I was unable to recreate your issue. It will be of help if you provide the upload page so I can check exactly what you have there which I guess will help me recreate the problem.
